Verified users on Twitter will most likely need to start paying the platform a fee of $20 per month, as part of their premium subscription.
According to a recent report, Twitter plans to start charging nearly $20 a month for users to keep their blue checkmarks as part of a premium service that will be rolled out under Elon Musk’s leadership.
“The whole verification process is being revamped right now,” Musk, who took over as the CEO of the social media platform Friday said, indicating the possible price bump that might roll out soon.
The company plans to raise its optional $4.99-a-month premium subscription called Twitter Blue to $19.99 a month. This being said, Twitter will add more features, including verification, to bring its subscription up to par with the cost hike.
Also according to the report, existing verified users have 90 days to subscribe to the new Twitter Blue after its launch or they’ll lose their checkmarks.
